San Diego Slab Leak Detection & Repairs
Qualified Service from Trustworthy San Diego Plumbers
The concrete slab that serves as your home’s foundation is more than
just a solid block on the land your home is built on; it also has wires
and pipes running through it, including water and
sewer main lines and much more. However, the pipes built into your slab could start to
leak, creating a serious threat to your home.
Slab leaks can cause immense damage by eroding or eating away at the foundation
your home is built on, which could cause slipping, sinking, and even potentially
devastating foundation problems that could jeopardize your entire home.
When you think you have a slab leak, you need to seek help from a professional
quickly, and you shouldn’t hesitate to
reach out to a San Diego plumbing specialist as soon as possible at (858) 375-5633.
What Causes A Slab Leak?
Foundation shifting, wear and tear on your plumbing, pipe corrosion, or
even high water pressure can all contribute to the plumbing in your slab
eventually cracking and developing a leak. However, how do you know any
of these things have occurred without inspecting your plumbing for itself?
How To Tell If You Have A Slab Leak
- Cracks in your walls or flooring
- Mildew or moisture under your flooring
- An increase in bugs in your home
- Higher water bills each month
- A drop in your home's water pressure
- Spinning water meter when no water is running in your home
- Sewer-like smells (if the leak is in your sewer lines)

Clairemont residential plumbing team can confirm this for you with testing methods that are proven, reliable,
and accurate. Once we confirm that you have a slab leak, we can work with

Repairing a Slab Leak
How do you fix a leaky pipe in your slab? Our team of skilled
San Diego plumbers has a few different options available to them.
For smaller issues in pipes that can’t be fixed with re-lining, sometimes
you can simply work around the problem by routing the waterline away from
the damaged pipe with a few feet exposed above ground. However, this is
usually the best option only when needing to replace a few feet.
This involves completely digging up the old line and putting a new one
in. While this will put a stop to the leaks, it is intrusive and requires
significant cutting into your floors and concrete slab to fix it. Usually,
this is a last-ditch effort or reserved for only the most serious issues.
